Tony and Laura Macias contacted me a couple of months ago and asked if I would interview Brad Rhoads again to get an update on his ministry. They were intrigued by the original interview because God had used Brad to show them that not all missionaries were church planters and that they could use their skills on the mission field. They are now raising their support preparing for full time missionary service.
Tony will be working with Bro. Brad Rhoads in MAF’s Learning Technologies. As an educator he will help the men who are learning from the Bible training tools that are created by Learning Technologies to know how best to use these tools. He will also be working with the curriculum creators to help them to understand what is needed in the field to help the students learn well.
Laura will work as an Orality Specialist. She will help train missionaries and nationals on how to teach the Bible in oral societies. These could be either non-literate people groups or people whose culture is more of an oral one—relying on verbal stories as opposed to written word to transmit information. She will be using the God Story’s program called Simply the Story as the basis for what she will be teaching.
